(KSL News) -- The group of Utah soldiers who served along the Mexican border last year as part of President Bush's crackdown will soon be headed to Iraq.

The Utah National Guard has announced it is sending about 200 members of the 116th Construction Support Equipment Company to Iraq. They'll provide security for convoys.

With about one-third of the U.S. casualties in Iraq coming from roadside bombs, the job for the volunteer troops will be risky.
